Alison Zeidman is a Los Angeles-based comedy writer who got her start doing stand-up in Philadelphia and NYC. She’s currently a writer on Full Frontal with Samantha Bee, and previously was Head Writer and Co-Executive Producer for Adam Ruins Everything. Her humor writing has been featured in the New York Times.
Alison’s main comedic focus is taking painful subject matter and difficult life events and turning them into comedy. Her stand-up is deeply personal and specific, and typically focuses on topics such as illness, death, grief, depression, and childhood trauma. (But like, in a fun way.) She is not nearly as much of a bummer as she sounds like, and, according to some, actually pretty funny.
